Sam Bahadur Movie Story

Sam Bahadur chronicles the eventful life of the legendary war hero Sam Manekshaw (Vicky Kaushal) – his formative years at military school, extraordinary heroics in World War II and leadership during the 1971 India-Pakistan war leading to the creation of Bangladesh.

Interspersed with his unwavering wit, the film offers insights into his trailblazing army career including overcoming detractors trying to label him as anti-national during the war. His deeply affectionate relationship with wife Silloo (Sanya Malhotra) forms the emotional core.

Vicky Kaushal brings the iconic Sam Manekshaw to life with irresistible charm and unwavering passion.
